$35 million Deal! Barca agree deal for Arturo Vidal with Bayern Munich

Arturo Vidal

Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal will join Barcelona on a three-year-deal, the Spanish club have confirmed.

The 31-year-old midfield dynamo was whisked away from Bayern's pre-season training camp in Bavaria and several media outlets claim an announcement of his transfer to Barcelona is imminent. The agreement is pending a medical, which will be held over the next few days.

While playing for Juventus he won four consecutive Serie A titles, winning the Coppa Italia in his final season and finished as runner-up in the Champions League in 2015 - losing to Barcelona.

Injuries restricted Vidal to 17 Bundesliga starts in the 2017-18 season and he was linked with a January move to Chelsea, despite indicating he was willing to extend a Bayern contract that was set to expire at the end of this season.

Vidal played 124 competitive games for Bayern, scoring 22 goals and providing 17 assists.
